If you are trying to decide on a specialization for your Master of Business Administration program and you’re interested in pursuing a management career, University of Arkansas Grantham’s Project Management Master of Business Administration program could be the perfect fit for you.

With a strong focus on strategic analysis and planning—and with plenty of practical exercises to put your classroom knowledge to the test—the Project Management MBA online degree program can help you develop the skills you need to build a strong foundation in business.

What students will learn

If you have ever worked in a team setting or environment, you know how critical good leadership is. It often feels like a good project manager can make or break your mission, so developing your project management skills can be a huge asset as you pursue your managerial career.

Through UA Grantham’s Project Management MBA program, graduates are able to analyze the knowledge, techniques, skills and tools of business models—from the past, present and future—to make strategic decisions and plans. By incorporating emerging data with current knowledge and fusing theory with practice, graduates are able to adapt their thinking and create strategies to effectively execute project initiatives.

Project managers must also be aware of overseeing project scope, time management, communication and human resource planning. As a student in this program, you will have the opportunity to develop the essential communication, finance, economics, organizational and ethical knowledge you will need to effectively work in project management roles.

Getting started

As a 100% online program, UA Grantham’s Project Management MBA degree can be earned at your own pace and on your own schedule. What’s more, whenever you need help, we’re there for you. Just because you’re learning on your own schedule doesn’t mean you’re alone for the educational journey.
